SparCity: Optimization and Co-design Framework for Sparse Computation

August 13, 2020

Congratulations to Dr. Didem Unat for her new EuroHPC grant – Towards Extreme Scale Technologies and Applications.  The action has a total budget of 2.6M Euros with 6 partners in Europe, where Dr. Unat will be leading the Consortium which includes Simula Research Laboratory (Norway), GraphCore Inc. (Norway), INESC-ID (Portugal), LMU Munich (Germany) and Sabanci University (Turkey). The SparCity project will deliver a coherent collection of innovative algorithms and tools for sparse computations on emerging hardware platforms, with the application focus on computational science, deep learning and data analytics.  Dr. Unat will collaborate with Dr. Güney from Koç in her autonomous driving work as a motivating application.
